kid-made: last minute ornaments


TOTALLY last minute kid-made crafts/ornaments - all require 2 or less materials!!! | @mamamissblog #kidmadecrafts #kidmadechristmas #kidmadeornaments #easykidcrafts


I am totally last-minute mama – I really am!  I wait until the night before to throw my posts together, a lot even the day of!  There is never enough time in the day to accomplish nearly as much as I want too.

Tell me you feel me?!  Tell me I’m not the only procrastinator left?!  Tell me I’m not the only one who IS ALWAYS LATE for everything?!

ha-ha I know there are still some of us out there (wink wink) – we strive to have everything Pinterest perfect.  Well, I hate to break the news to ya – it’s far from Pinterest perfect around this house.  Halloween decorations – ha-ha they never went up & sat in that box staring at me everyday until Thanksgiving came & then I didn’t need to put them up because I got to put up Christmas now.  YAY!  Our tree actually went up a decent time this year – but presents – lol – yep not wrapped yet (night before babee).  And baking for the Christmas Eve soiree I’m hosting – yep the oven hasn’t even been turned on yet!

The holidays are not about perfection, they are about family, as they should be.  If you’re striving for perfection – well, you aren’t gonna find it here ;)  I’m far, waaaaay far, from perfection friends, I’m just keepin’ on keepin’ on, the only way I know how to (with a lot of coffee!!).

So let’s get back on track, Jack!

So, these kid-made last minute ornaments are what you need right now.  You want to know why, and why I see such beauty in these kid-made creations?!  Well,  here’s the lowdown…

  • Besides scissors & glue, all of them really only need 2 or less materials.   what-what!
  • They are all super easy for the average preschooler to do without a whole lot of instruction.  woot-woot!
  • They will keep them busy.  yeeeesss!

See, I got your back!!  Now you can be procrastinator mama just like me!!  Throw down the supplies & LET. THEM. GO. TO. CRAFTY. TOWN.  (that’s right next to coffee town BTW ;)

Here’s where you can find all this goodness so you can get those cookies made in time for Christmas…  yehaw!  Make it happen mama!
